The administrators at King David Community Center, as we're sure you've noticed in our previous articles, strive to keep in step with the times in their daily activities, using all the latest achievements in various fields of science. We try to make sure that all of our wards, without being restricted by their age, do not lag behind the trends of time.
With this purpose, the Community Center is glad to provide senior training in computer literacy. Because it is impossible not to admire a person for whom, just yesterday the computer may have seemed completely foreign, today busily sitting in front of the monitor and catching up on the latest news, writing e-mails, or simply chatting with friends who are thousands of miles away.

In the act of teaching their clients the art of computer ownership, the employees at the Center approach this with great tact and care. We understand that, for most elderly people, when faced with learning something entirely new to them, are discouraged by an understated self-esteem; they seem to be convinced that it is already too late for them to learn a large, new stream of information. Gladly, the specialists at the Community Center exercise their patience, in relieving their clients of this lack of confidence; the highest level of professionalism allows to achieve great things.
Sometimes, for instance, our elderly clients are afraid to approach learning the computer for fear of breaking it. And again, the professionals at King David Community Center show patience and polite persistence, to convince their clients that one could break even an ordinary radio, and that with careful handling, still nothing terrible will happen.

Another myth that the specialists at the Community Center have to dismiss is that using that computer can be bad for your health. In fact, they constantly explain that the metered use of a computer actually has a positive affect on brain-function, and slows age-related problems like memory-loss and dementia. The affect in this case is actually better than from simply reading books, since the computer requires their user to simultaneously use several functions – like absorbing information, using the mouse and therefore your motor skills, and to switch between one activity and the other.
Overall, the employees of King David Community Center successfully show their clients that the computer will open a new and exciting way to explore the world, learn the unknown, and find friends or partners with shared interests. The are several clients coming to the Center, even right now, who have already found themselves worthy chess opponents from all corners of the world, or have found friends, lost many years ago.
